Research Details
  • 1. To evaluate the fusion rate following the use of AttraX®Putty in spinal fusion procedures performed at one or two contiguous level(s) of the cervical and lumbar spine. 2. To evaluate the complication rate associated with the use of AttraX®Putty compared to published and/or retrospective data for autograft, allograft, synthetics, bone morphogenic protein (BMP), or other graft alternatives. 3. To evaluate and identify any relationships between clinical outcomes (pain and function) and radiographic outcomes (fusion rate)

Study Design
Prospective non-randomized multi-arm observational study
Study Type

1. Study Arm: Anterior Approach Cervical Interbody Fusion(ACDF) ACDF with CoRoent® Small Contoured or Small Lordotic Plus (SLP) and AttraX® Putty in the interbody space, and with NuVasive Helix ACPTM 2. Study Arm: Anterior Approach Lumbar Interbody Fusion eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF) using CoRoent XL or Anterior Lateral Interbody Fusion (ALIF) using BrigadeTM or XLR implant(s) and AttraX® Putty in the interbody space, and with bilateral posterior stabilization by Armada® or SpheRx® pedicle screw system. 3. Study Arm: Posterior Approach Lumbar Interbody Fusion Bilateral or unilateral Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) or Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) using CoRoent Large or Large Oblique (LO) implant(s) (respectively) and AttraX® Putty in the interbody space, and with bilateral posterior stabilization by Armada or SpheRx pedicle screw system. All postoperative restrictions and rehabilitation of the subject are per the Investigator’s standard of care.

Intervention Type
Primary Outcome Measures

  • 4. Preservation of interverterbal disc height over time
  • 5. The change in American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) score from baseline at each follow-up visit
  • 6. The change in subject self-reported pain scores Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) from baseline at each follow-up visit
  • 7. The change in Neck Disability Index (NDI) or Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores from baseline at each follow-up visit
  • 8. The change in SF-36 scores from baseline at each follow-up visit
  • 9. Patient satisfaction at each follow-up visit
  • 10. The number of subjects returning to employment and the mean time of return to employment (as applicable)
